DRAG WEEK RECORD BROKEN - LARRY LARSON RUNS A 6.95 AT 209.10 MPH
The 2010 Hot Rod Drag Week is over and it was the best ever! To end the week of competition, Larry Larson threw everything he had at breaking into the 6's on what turned out to be the final run of the night. Here is the first video to show that very run! There's an on board view and an awesome super slo-mo to get a great look at the fire breathing Chevy II that Larry wheeled to a Drag Week record of 6.95. We had two street driven cars run over 200 MPH in the quarter mile, Larry in his Chevy II and Jeff Lutz in his 57 Chevy and both cars survived the grueling 1000 mile drive as well!

Texas; Tulsa, Oklahoma; and back to Topeka. Look for other videos on the
HOT ROD YouTube channel, and see the full story in the January and February
2012 issues of HOT ROD magazine.

Larry Larson Runs 6's.mov
BangShift.com presents Larry Larson's 2009 Drag Week winning '66 Chevy II
running 6.934 at 211.59 mph in Las Vegas at the PSCA Street Car
Supernationals. This video shows you all the angles, from inside,
underneath the bumper, and outside the car. Larry's car was unchanged from
it's Drag Week trim, and had only been outfitted with a new pair of Hoosier
DOT legal "slicks". Over the 4 day event, Larry ran 6.99, 7.00, 6.96, and
finally 6.93. After the 6.93 on Saturday evening, we added air to the
tires, packed the chutes, filled it with pump gas, and cruised the strip
for about 4 hours while shooting video and photos. Stay tuned at
www.BangShift.com for a feature on Larry's car along with more killer 6
second and cruising video.
Larry Larson's 6 second Nova Cruising the Strip in Vegas 1.mov
Bangshift.com brings you Larry Larson's infamous cruise down Las Vegas Blvd
following his historic 6.93/211 pass at the PSCA Street Car Super Nationals
in Las Vegas on November 21, 2009. To get ready to drive the car on the
street, all we did was add air to the tires, pack the chutes, fill it with
pump gas, take off the stickers on the windows, and hit the key. This Lenco
equpped beast really is a street car. The pass on the video is the 6.96 run
from early on Saturday. The 6.93 is also available to view at
-6.93-Second-Quarter-Mile-in-a-Street-Driven-Nova.html as is a full feature
on the car. Enjoy.
